yeah great combo and I know where you got the body style for the monster truck...it doesn't happen to be called midnight pumpkin does it? haha

About how long is the truck and trailer combined? I'm looking to build something a little bigger and that looks like just the ticket. I like how it is not really detailed but looks really good with the details that are there....the holes inside of the float are a nice touch too! and wow, the treads on the tires!! awesome!

The truck is 18" long with 2" wheels and the trailer is 26" long, combined the unit is 38". I feel that with too much detail the project stops being a toy and becomes a model which is always a temptation. Toys should be simple,robust and take license with scale, this is approx. 1/2" to the foot.

Nice trucks.  Those wheels on that monster truck must have taken some time.  And like you said - I think it has the perfect amount of detail for a toy.  It looks like both could be played with outside in the dirt and sand.  Thanks for sharing.

Well done! I like the combination. The Mack truck looks great. I still need to make a trailer for mine and something to load onto the trailer.
